I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Technology industry, pays better than non-tech companies in the area.

Cons

Absolutely no teamwork or collaboration. Everything is a zero sum game - for me to do well, someone else has to do poorly, reality be damned. It's becoming less and less about how competent people are, and much more about who's ass you kiss, and who you are friends outside of work with.

Advice to Management

Actually follow through on the words you use. It not a meritocracy when we are told that we have to accept "what the tool spits out" instead of actually rewarding good employees. Also instead of continuing to promote people to management simply because they are good contributors, maybe you actually promote and reward people for developing employees and being a good manager.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work, good people, decent responsibilities. I was treated like a 'real' employee, given important work, and learned a great deal. Pretty good co-op pay. Decent employee perks, such as deep (50%+) discounts on certain products.

    Cons

    The company was very much 'big business'; working on a design team with over a hundred people can make you feel like a cog in the machine. In addition, it sometimes felt like the company moved very slowly (the projects were huge and had 5-year design cycles - which is normal, but can be tiring.)
